Sr. BORRIERO, M. Maddalena FDCC
* 1885 年 5
Mother Maddalena Borriero F.D.C.C.
Mother Maddalena Borriero of the Canossian Daughters of Charity was called to her everlasting reward on 23 August 1977, at the ripe age of 92 years. She had spent almost seventy years in the religious life, of which sixty-six in mission lands: Hankow (Hupeh), Macao and Hong Kong, without ever returning to Italy for a visit. Throughout her long and active life she fully dedicated herself with a love of preference for the needy. In her humble and hidden service to them and to her community, she revealed outstanding virtues of goodness, meekness and optimism in every situation, backed by a solid spirit of prayer and child-like trust in God.
With this very same attitude, stretching forth her arms to heaven and moving her lips in a hymn of thanks, she joyously entered the heavenly Jerusalem.
May her memory remain in everlasting benediction.
9 September 1977
